I think it’s more of an issue with the freedom perk, this week’s Laz I have freedom on 5x armor parts and still got rooted for the full time. The stoneform still provides a free in that case, but the underlying problem i think is that the freedom perk.


Hey nato,

Thank you for reporting, I have forwarded to the Devs team for further investigation.

Best Regards,

@Whistie17 I also tested it with 4 freedom and it doesnt work with my character also so its something that should be adressed immediately cause freedom as perk is crippled and people paid a lot for those parts.

bump, pretty retarded that freedom’s perk clearly states “Slow, Stun and Root expires 11% faster” yet vines is a root but freedom doesn’t affect it.

Bump :frowning:

Although i agree that it should work for everything idk about it lowering a heartrune lockdown from vines. To what? 1 second with 5 freedoms? It would make it by far the worst rune to have and borderline useless. You have to charge it up to even use it once in a while too…

It’s not like 5 freedom is given, I’m using my 5 perk slots for it. Also heartrunes charge fairly fast in my opinion.

I think its fair, if freedom work on ultimat too , no one will use that ultimate making it pointless! So its fair if someone wait a lot of time to charge it and use it 1 time

It is worth noting that the opposite is also true. Any effect that would increase CC duration doesn’t affect Vines. I’m fairly certain it is simply intended to have a locked duration.
